Utility Customers Reminded to Leave Water Running

freeze-alert-mdCommunities throughout the WKVI listening area are experiencing problems with frozen pipes due to the deeply frozen ground and thick snow cover. The best way to avoid frozen pipes is to open a faucet to trickle water and leave it open until further notice. The towns of Knox, North Judson, Halmet, Winamac, Medaryville and Culver have all asked us to share that information with listeners. Even though the weather is expected to warm up within the next week, it’s going to take time for the ground to thaw. Please leave water running until further notice. Many communities have agreed to adjust bills so customers will not have to pay for the increased consumption. Customers need to contact their municipal utility company or town hall to request those adjustments.
